THEY JUST KEEP HANGING ON


Fall just keeps hanging on this year and I, for one, am thrilled! Even through three rains, two frost, and gusts of wind up to twenty-five miles per hour, the leaves have stayed put. However, today I have noticed that they are beginning to brown, so the end is close at hand.

Yesterday, my wife and I drove up to Potter’s Falls, which is near Wartburg, Tennessee (couldn’t they change that name?) to do some more last minute “leaf peeping.” There was plenty of water and color left to enjoy.

Just moments after taking this shot, I slipped and cracked my knee hard against a big rock. I thought hiking boots were good for rock hopping, but quickly learned that tenni-wackers are probably best!

Anyway, it has been a very good year leaf photography.

I love the top photo. Beautiful.
Sorry about the booboo. I will kiss it and make it feel better.

But I told you to be careful didn't I... Oops! I just had a MOM moment.

Beautiful pictures, I sure don't have little rivers or creeks around here to photograph, and I'm too lazy to drive up north to Sedona or Prescott. Maybe one of this days but for now pictures of my neighborhood will have to do.

Very nice. And tennis shoes are best. Boat soles. But you can bust your ass with those too.

Sweet leaves! We went from Summer to winter seems like overnight. Clouds are rolling in and there's a sharp chill in the air.
The lower picture looks like a trail up in the Sierras that I once rode down, found un-crossable, and had a helluva time getting back up and out... It was like "five miles and a full tank of gas" - what a struggle.

Bozette - I'd sure take you up on that if you were here. Glad I got to hear your voice last night - probably need to get me a vid-cam, huh?

Thanks all!

The leaves have been beautiful this week, but it's going to take me forever to get all these leaves blown/raked up when the weather finally gets dry again.

Wartburg, TN - ha!
I've driven through Wartrace, TN - what is it with TN and Warts?
